Rainbow Bridge Natural Arch

Rainbow Bridge Natural Arch is a famous bridge and is one of the world’s largest natural bridges. The two other natural arches both situated in southern Utah, are Kolob Arch and Landscape Arch. Both the bridges are several meters longer than the Rainbow Bridge Natural Arch. Rainbow Bridge is 290 feet in height, making it taller than its longer competitors. One can reach Rainbow bridge within two hours of boat ride on Lake Powell. The material used to build Rainbow Bridge is made from Sandstone that gets deposited by wind and sand naturally. This is the result of the extreme fluctuations in the climate during the Triassic and Jurassic periods. With the end of the Jurassic the layers of Sandstone get covered up with the Seawater which further compresses and thus rocks are forms.

These were the Anasazi who eventually began to occupy the Grand Anasazi Canyon region. In addition to basket weaving, Anasazi were also excellent at making pottery items. They also were great artists, often creating sceneries from their daily lives on walls using natural pottery clay and natural colors.
